Wild Game - Fuel for Performance

Updated: Oct 5, 2018




Protein

Protein is a vital nutrient for our bodies- used to repair tissues, growth, performance and the basis of training adaptations. Average adults need approximately 1 gram per KILOGRAM BODY WEIGHT (not pound- do the conversion!). Athletes needs vary from 1 gram to 2 gram per kilogram body weight. Game meat is the leanest for red meat consumption with one of the highest quality of amino acid profiles.


Tip:

For increased protein synthesis to occur, a post recovery meal must be consumed within 2 hours in combination with a carbohydrate to maximize muscle synthesis and recovery.
